On April 24, 2017, the U.S. State Department announced that Nauert would be the new State Department spokesperson. She held her first press briefing in that role five weeks later, on June 6, 2017. Afterward, she Tweeted that she felt honored to work with "such talented, dedicated staff and distinguished journalists." Journalist Josh Rogin of The Washington Post Tweeted a compliment to Nauert on her first press briefing but stated she was unable to answer questions related to statements by Donald Trump about foreign policy. Rogin later clarified this in an opinion piece in which he wrote that it was clear from Nauert's briefing that the U.S. State Department was "distancing itself" from Trump on topics including UNFPA and the diplomatic crisis consuming Qatar and its neighbors. He wrote that the "sheer disconnect between what Nauert was explaining as State Department policy and what the White House and Trump have said was striking."
